Installing irrigation in my farm

I wish to take this opportunity to thank my lenders so much funding my loan and even doing it within a very short time. As I had indicated earlier, this time I am investing on farming. I have been doing this for some time but experiencing some challenges involving un reliable rainfall patterns. I wish to do irrigation water connectivity so that I do a reliable farming. This money will help me do a phase one of the connectivity and may be I will continue doing the rest in future.
I intend to use the money as follows:
Pipes 45000
labor 35000
Connection fee 15000
Total 95000
Once the water is connected, I will be able to plant at whatever time of the year and this will end up increasing the income that I normally make per year from this Pease of land. Once again I say thank you very much for funding my loan.

Installing irrigation in my farm

I wish to let my lenders know that the loan that I just concluded made much impact in my life and that of my family. I was able to buy all the commodities as I had mentioned in my former posting. The stock that I bought was in line with the customers demand hence this made the profit to increase. As a result, I have been able to pay for my daughter's school fees who is now completing high school and also for my college fees. As per now I am in my final year.
As a result of increased income, I have also been able to engage in other income generating project which is farming. This has also been able to add to what I earn. Moving forward I also want to improve on this project so that both with the former business, I will be financially stable to be able to do more investments in future. Below is a photo of my peace of land.

I wish to state to my lenders that the loan that I just completed paying had really made great impact in the business and eventually increasing the profit. I had increased my stock as I had mentioned when I received the loan. These were items in line with the customers demand which ended up uplifting my life economically.
As a result I was able to increase my income to approximately 5000 shillings per week. I am able to pay for my daughter's school fees and also my college fees. By now I am in my final year and my daughter also is in her final year of high school. I have also been able to engage in farming as another income generating project.

My last loan repayment lasted longer than I wished for. During the last 24 months until December 2019, My grandmother had become old (95yrs) and sick and taking care of her become my responsibility. The hospital bills slowed my business financially but to me, taking care of my grandma the best way possible was the only thing I could do to her in her sunset days. She finally passed away in December 2019.

I have refocused fully on my business and I humbly request my lenders to consider giving financial support to my business endeavors.

Once more, I thank all my lenders.

Solar lanterns for harvest for women & girls

Hello my lenders,

First and foremost i want to thank you for your continued support towards the growth of Kukula Solar. Your continued lending to my social business enables me to continue transforming lives of families in rural and slum communities of Eastern Province. Alot has happened since December 2019.

We have distributed 175 solar home systems in rural communities of Chipata and Katete.

We opened our second office in Katete District and employed our first Area Manager. Works in Katete is going on well and sales are increasing each day.

We have continued to empower women to take up leadership positions in my social business and ensuring that they continue to earn an acceptable income.

Children's study time has continued to increase, helping them to improve their grades so that they can achieve their dreams.

Women continue to save upto $70 annually for switching to our solar products and men can now work at night molding blocks or doing gardening.

All this amazing things are happening because you decided to believe in what we are building. Together we are disrupting the way products reach people living at the Base of the Pyramid.

Thank you so very much for making this possible and i continue to look forward to your support in my next round of loan application.

Thankyou so very much! ZIKOMO KWAMBIRI
